    EDIT - My post apparently got chewed up by the database error, so I'm reposting...

    The non-eventful moment was yesterday afternoon as I was walking my dog. I had gotten back from work and was still in a suit and tie, minus the jacket. I was openly carrying my 1911 while meandering the sidewalks, waiting for the dog to do his business. As I was walking, a VA Beach police cruiser drove by, suddenly stopped, did a U-turn in the street, drove down the road back towards me on the wrong side, then parked facing me about 25 feet away. The cop in the car then proceeded to stare at me for five minutes... just stare. No radio talking (as I could notice), no getting out to talk, nothing, just staring.

    Since there was no one else out walking or driving by much while I had been out, he must've just been driving by on normal patrol, saw me, and decided to... stare. God knows what he was trying to do, be it intimidate me by the stare-down technique, or try to see if I took off running for some bizarre reason, or even if I wasn't going to pick up the dog poop from the grass So, it was a non-event, in the strict sense, but quite weird from my point of view. Every other VA Beach cop I've seen before while OCing just walked on by or nodded or otherwise kept on with their day, while this guy watched me for no reason like I was a drive-in movie. Strange!

    I started to think the same thing as I was reading the post, haha

    Seriously, maybe he had a recruit with him and was explaining OC while watching you. Or maybe he was goofing off on his cell phone and used you as an excuse if someone were to come by, ya never know!

    its cool, I just couldn't think of anything sufficiently smart-*ssed so went with the Juvenile EEEEWWWW ACCCK to attempt to convey full body shivers...



    But more to the point, and to the OP denwego, It was Weired off the scale odd sort of way... I would have been tempted to go ask him "Problem?" But don't know for sure if I would have...

    "They" watch you all the time you just haven't noticed. The dog. It isn't really a dog. It's a highly sophisticated monitoring device covered in fur. It records everything you do then transmits the data to "them". The cop in the car was getting the weekly download from the Rover2000. Usually they pull in your driveway while you're at work and download the data. This time, they got it while you wereoutwalking what you think is a dog.

    They did the same thing to me.

    That's why, when I go out, I cover my dog with aluminum foil, wear a spaghetti strainer on my head, and place sanitary napkins in my shoes. No one has ever noticed that I'm open carrying, either. I wonder why?

    I had a very, very similar experience. When I came home one day, I saw one of those cars in my driveway and I think that it had even been in my bed. My wife, who was home at the time, said that she saw it too. She said that the model number was the NextDoorNeighbor2008.

    She got a better look at it than I did, but I'm ready if it ever comes back.
